DSP FPGA Design Engineer


Stream Resourcing are currently seeking an DSP-FPGA Design Engineer to join a world-leading Aerospace and Defence company with an international reach, providing products for more than 40 countries worldwide.
You will be responsible for designing, implementing, and testing FPGA-based digital signal processing solutions for Radar cross-section (RCS) measurement system. Working as part of a high calibre Software/RF System team, you will be involved in all phases of projects and additional engineering tasks.

The role involves:

* Implement complex system algorithms and interfaces in Model Based Environments for RCS measurements system, across the whole project lifecycle
* Develop requirements and budgets for signal processing functions
* Support system & FPGA simulations, implementations, and verification (In Matlab-Simulink)
* Implement DSP algorithms for FPGA (Xilinx) structures
* Provide risk assessments, suggest and execute feasibility investigations, and guidance for bringing new technology to market
* Communicate timely and accurate project status, provide alternative problem resolution ideas
* Ensuring, in collaboration with Software Lead , the complete set of requirements from which the model is to be developed are captured and managed, including the capture and communication of design constraints , including external interfaces, partitioning requirements etc
* Contributing directly to the definition of Software architectural constraints considerations, which form an important set of functional requirements allocated to the model
* Ensuring that any Software verification activities performed by the Systems life cycle processes within the model are provided into the Software Life cycle process in a manner that has satisfied the DO178C objectives

Key skills/experience:

* Design with architecting and implementing Digital Signal processing systems, Functions and FPGA design experience using VHDL or Verilog
* FPGA design experience with synthesis, timing analysis and verification
* Experience with Modelsim, Matlab/Simulink, Xilinx Vivado, Git and development tools
* Detailed knowledge of implementing Filters, FFTs , etc, design structures

Desirable experience:

* Working knowledge at both simulation level (Matlab/Simulink) as well as the implementation and verification level
* Familiarity with using oscilloscopes, spectrum analysers, logic analysers, etc
* Literacy with real-time embedded software, especially debugging is advantage
* Strong interpersonal skills. Excellent verbal/written communication skills
* Strong background and experience with industry best practices and version control
* Understanding of RF Systems, specifically Radar or EW
